Anarchism and History

I wonder if forcing people who like history to stop studying it would be considered "legitimate coercion" in Chomsky's system.

On the other hand, apparently this riot was done by about 75 people. Hardly a revolution.

Good question.

Indeed it a small band of a few hundred hard cases who are doing the riotous violence in Portland, and from what I read the citizens are getting fed up and pushing the city government to round them up.

They may call themselves anarchists but it's angry, destructive people like them who make abolishing the police impossible.
